us all become a true and fruitful branch on the vine
Jesus, by accepting Him in
our lives at it pleases Him to come:
As the Truth - to be told;
As the Life - to be lived;
As the Light - to be lighted;
As the Love - to be loved;
As the Way - to be walked;
As the Joy - to be given;
As the Peace - to be spread;
As the Sacrifice - to be offered,
In our families and within our neighborhood."
